Celebrating 10,000 videos

So, the Global FlyFisher’s video section just passed 10,000 videos. And suitably enough the 10K mark was a Davie McPhail video showing how to tie a muddler.

I had thought about doing a video myself to celebrate the 10K mark, but time slipped between my fingers, and just this morning the 9,999’s video was added. And just minutes ago, Davie McPhail published a video on tying a small muddler, and that became number 10,000 on this channel.

I have a weak spot for both muddlers and Davie McPhail, and I know his videos are very popular, so I found it suitable to celebrate with one of his productions.
That also gives me the opportunity to thank Davie and the hundreds of other people who have made the video section possible. If it weren’t for the continuing stream of excellent fly fishing and fly tying videos being published and shared, this section would be pretty skinny. My own production amounts to less than 10 videos and even though I have co-produced more than 50 more, it would still be a pretty far cry from 10,000.

So once again a heartfelt thanks to all the video producers out there who film, edit and publish some amazing videos for us to share and the community to enjoy!

So, it’s onward towards 20K...

A PS: Videos online are as fragile as anything posted online, and sometimes the videos disappear from the source, and then can't be embedded here anymore. So we're standing on gravel in a fast flowing river with this celebration, because one of these days I might discover a few videos, which have been taken offline, and I'll delete them from GFF. Then there might be less than 10,000 videos for a short while - until I have added some more, which might take a few days. But it stands that Davie McPhail's muddler video is and will always be number 10,000 added, and luckily Davie has no habit of taking anything offline, so it will most likely be here for a long while as a testament to his productivity and the amazing success of both his videos and - humbly - the GFF Video Channel.

So, it’s onward towards 20K...

… I have a small favor to ask.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
